Florida’s better off in COVID-19 fight than it was in April, DeSantis says

Gov. Ron DeSantis held a rare Saturday news conference to reassure Floridians about rising cases of COVID-19 in the state, saying that the “vast majority of new cases are from young people who don’t have symptoms of the disease.

The disease burden is not as significant as it was in March and April,” he said. “Very important to point out. We’re in a much better position than we were in March or April.

He pointed to low hospitalization rates, increased testing and the median age of a person with COVID-19, which fell to 37 last week. Early in the pandemic, he noted, only people with symptoms could be tested.
